The miraculous birth of Hazrat Imam Hussain
The grandson of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa, the majestic son of Hazrat Syedna Ali and Hazrat Sayyidatuna Fatima, his Royal Highness Syedna Imam Hussain was miraculous. Even his blessed birth is a great wonder.
Sayyidi Arif Billah Nooruddin Abdur Rahman Jami has stated in Shawahid-un-Nubuwwah: Syedna Imam Hussain was born on 5th of Shaban on Tuesday in 4 AH in Madina-tul-Munawwarah. It is narrated that Syedna Imam Hussain was given birth after a pregnancy period of just six months. Other than Holy Prophet Hazrat Syedna Yahya and Imam Hussain, no child having birth after pregnancy period of only six months could survive.
Allama Jami has further stated, Whenever Imam Hussain would stay in the dark, his environs would become illuminated by the refulgent beams radiating from his blessed forehead and cheeks. (Shawahid-un-Nubuwwah, pp. 228)
